About the Author

Karen Morgaine, Ph D, is a queer, white, academic with a penchant for critical theory and anarchist/Buddhist/feminist/post-colonial perspectives. After working in the domestic violence and community mental health fields for ten years, she completed her Ph D in social work and social research at Portland State University. She fortuitously landed in a sociology department at California State University, Northridge, where she is able to teach a variety of courses related to social welfare and social justice including courses in community organizing, social movements, and LGBTQQI communities. Her research leans towards analysis of social movement framing and issues related to power and privilege within social movements and identity groups. When not in the classroom or in front of the computer, she can be found dining all around Los Angeles, biking/doing yoga/lifting weights, and laughing a lot with her partner.

Moshoula Capous-Desyllas, Ph D, MSW, is an assistant professor in the sociology department at California State University, Northridge. She teaches social work courses in anti-oppressive practice, diversity and social justice, human behavior in the social environment, and social work methods. Her interests include arts-based research methods, community-based participatory action research, community organizing and advocacy, social work with immigrants, trans-global migration issues, commercial sex work, and intersecting oppressions. She is committed to facilitating community dialogue and a deeper understanding about issues of diversity and social justice through art. Her passion lies in highlighting the voices of marginalized communities through the use of art as a form of activism, empowerment and social change. When school isn’t in session, she can be found kayaking in the Sea of Cortez or the Agean Sea, or lost in the global South with a backpack in tow.
